LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNW) – The Jayhawks beat the Wildcats 81-60 in the Sunflower Showdown Tuesday.

The teams ended their bitter showdown with a wild melee behind the basket that included punches, shoving and at least one player picking up a stool.

The brawl started moments after the Jayhawks tried to dribble out the time on their 81-60 victory. Silvio De Sousa was stripped by the Wildcats’ DaJuan Gordon near mid-court and Gordon tried to go in for a layup. The Jayhawks’ big man recovered and blocked his shot, sending Gordon to the floor, then stood over him barking. That triggered benches to empty and punches to be thrown.

Kansas native Christian Braun led all scorers with 20 points on the night.
